For the past 12 years, intrepid teams of animators would spend their May long weekend locked in the Quickdraw Animation Society studios, making brand-new animated films during our annual ANIMATION LOCKDOWN production event! Participants would enter the studios on Friday night, work shoulder-to-shoulder with their fellow artists all weekend, and leave Monday afternoon having created something incredible.

We find ourselves in 2020 stuck in a very different kind of Lockdown. The world is closed. The QAS studios are shut down, at least temporarily. Gatherings of all kinds are banned. It’s a real drag.

But don’t despair! Do you hear that sound? That pull beyond the horizon? The itch in the soles of your feet? That, my friend, is the CALL TO ADVENTURE! The theme for this year’s *remote* edition of the Animation Lockdown!

Yes, we’re still doing it! It’s gonna be different. It’s gonna be online. It’s gonna be weird, and awkward, and take a lot longer. But that’s no excuse. The gauntlet has been thrown. The summons has been sent. Adventure waits for no rat. We’re leaving for destinations unknown. Buckle up and enjoy the ride!
